But why waste another year with probably the worst goaltending tandem in the league? Wasting UFA years for top forwards. It's not like the Leafs are in the Oiler's age group, this is a team of prime-aged players and a fanbase starving for a playoff berth. What's holding them back is quite clearly below-par goaltending. Like it or not the Leafs are built for right now. There are no super stars in the pipeline outside of perhaps Reilly. This is the team, right now.
I don't see any of those guys in the deal personally, but I don't really get the sentiment either. Rather sink and hold onto shiny young players than succeed? That's HF mentality and not the real world.
In the real world you have to win, you have to produce. In the real world young defenceman come and go.
